is a unique and beautiful species of red macroalgae native to the
Caribbean that we collect on occasion. It is rare and sporadic in
growth. The wild colonies typically
grow as solitary specimens in depths of up to 20 ft and can be
difficult to locate due to their camouflaged coloration. The fronds
have a metallic, iridescent appearance on top and are a deep red
color underneath. Each thin, flattened frond is tooth shaped but
can also be slightly rounded on the edge. We only find a few
specimens each year in the area where we collect so this species
is somewhat rare. Although we don't typically offer "frags"
of algae, this particular species is sold as a 2-3" piece.
